BENEFITS

Offset your electricity bill with clean solar power If your home is suitable, we’ll help you determine a system that will suit your energy and budget considerations.

Typically residential installation requires between 12 and 40 modules. In most households 12 modules will offset 50% of their Energy needs. It can cost up to $4 per watt installed for smaller systems 2-3 kW, or for as low as $2.80 per watt installed on larger systems (around 10 kW)***.

***systems will vary with equipment brand, roof type and orientation of the house, slope of the roof, etc.

Making the move to home solar is not only about saving money, it’s about making a difference, taking control of your power needs and doing the right thing. Average system** will help to offset over 150 ton of CO2 over first 25 years of its operation or eliminating the need to burn 145 755 pounds of coal

** based on 6 kW system

From initial evaluation and design, to permits, installation and getting connected to the grid, you’ll benefit from our team’s experience and expertise.

Most equipment we provide comes with included monitoring software, which will let you and us know if something is not up to standard. Systems also include 25 year solar panel manufacturing warranty, 10, 15 or up to 25 years on all other electronic components warranty, and 5 Year SunSol installation warranty.

If you don’t have solar, you pay your local utility for electricity. In most parts ofthe world, you pay a monthly fixed charge and then a price for each kilowatt-hour you buy.

If you’re contemplating solar, the crucial question to ask is how the kilowatt-hours produced by your solar panels will be treated. The answer is “net metering”.

Under net metering, the solar production is netted off your electricity consumption and you pay your utility for the balance. For example, if you usually consume 1,000 kWh of electricity per month and then install solar panels that generate 600 kWh per month, your net electricity consumptions goes down to 400 kWh. So regardless of electricity price increase – your offset of your bill will be by 60%.

Researchers have looked at this question as well. Here’s what they’ve found:

  • A study conducted by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2011 found that homes that have solar electric systems installed actually have a better market value and sell for better prices compared to those houses that do not.

 

  • Another study conducted by NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research) also found that solar panels did increase the value of a home at the point of sale by 4 – 5%.
